Another Questionaire

Posted: Thursday, September 25th, 2008 @ 8:58 am in World of Questionaires | No Comments »

I rather enjoy doing these but don’t want to clutter up my friends boxes with them, so I put them here. This one came in this morning from LadyJ – Have fun! 1. What is your occupation right now? Housewife – Retired!! 2. What color are your socks right now? No socks – no shoes […]

First of Autumn

I do believe that yesterday was the first day of Autumn, but I didn’t make it to my blog yesterday. I was rather otherwise employed. Errands and just spending time in the beautiful outdoors!! I am really amazed that we have gotten this deep into September and the trees have not changed color at all. […]

A Day in My Life

Today is a day of Sunshine and gentle breezes – warmth and contentment. I overslep this morning – not getting up until 10 AM of course I had several nights when I couldn’t sleep so I really needed the extra sleep. Went downtown to get some bubble wrap so I can pack away some sets […]

Maybe Sunshine – Then again??

It has been a wild and wooly few days around here. Over the weekend we were hit by the remnents of Ike. The rains started Friday night when a front from the Pacific collided with the leading edge of Ik’s system. It rained – and it rained – and then it rained some more. Now […]

SUNSHINE!!

It has been a bit more eventful around here the last couple of days. Friday I actually broke over and went to the movies. I wanted to see “Get Smart” but it didn’t start until 6:45 PM and as it was only 11:45 AM, I wasn’t going to hang around and wait for it to […]

Just another questionaire that I received from a friend. These are usually a hoot and I don’t have anything else to post today so here goes: Four things about me that you may not have known: BA in Home Ec and History 2 Brothers and 1 Sister I dislike the Christmas holidays I would love […]

Chicory

Chicory Chichorium Intybus This prolific and invasive weed is also known as Blue Sailors, Succory, Hendibeh, Wild Chicory, Coffeeweed and Wild Endive. It will grow nearly anywhere, on Rocky roadsides, waste areas, open fields and meadows. It mostly grows spontaneously and spread rapidly, but it is cultivated either specifically for the root or specifically for […]

Rain Rain and more Rain

It is raining again. I think this is the remnents of Gustov coming up at us. This started yesterday and it has been raining ever since. The ditches across the street are full of water again and they are predicting this to last through tomorrow at least. I’m not particularly happy about the rain but […]

Summer is over

I really don’t know where the summer has gone, but here it is, September 2nd – of course some would argue with me about the summer being over as it is 90+ degrees today and so humid I think I might need a straw to breathe. Of course the hottest days of the summer come […]
